Duterte tells ambassadors: Even if I kill a hundred a day, PH won’t go to the dogs
President Rodrigo Duterte revealed that he has been blunt about his unswerving stand on his war of drugs in his meetings with ambassadors in the past few days.
Duterte has practically given up on explaining to foreign executives why he has taken a take no prisoners approach in snuffing out the country’s drug problem because they refused to take a more open mind.
“There will never be a time that I’ll go to your countries because if you refuse to understand our problem, I do not think you’ll be able to understand anymore,” said Duterte in a speech Wednesday.
He said the foreign executives were “so engrossed in the lives of criminals” that they forget that their countries were “teetering on the edge” due to narco-politics.
“The lives of those idiots there if I kill them a hundred a day will not bring this country down to the dogs. But if you allow politics to enter into the mainstream of the Filipino life, then we are in danger,” said Duterte in defending his war on drugs.
